Own A Piece Of Toronto Music History…Cheap!

So much for preserving Toronto’s cultural heritage—it looks like pretty much the entire stock of Sam The Record Man’s flagship store is going up for auction.
On Wednesday, June 27th at 10:30 a.m., Benaco Sales Ltd. will hold an auction on location inside the flagship, at 347 Yonge Street. Contents include “Outdoor neon records, unique neon signage, Olde English Shoe shine stations, Antique English Pub Bars, Store Fixtures, Marquee Signs, Pos and Security systems, Musical Instruments, Plus much more!” So if you want to put in a bid for cultural artifacts that are a timeless piece of this city’s musical history and use them as discussion pieces for your coffee klatch or whatever, get out your chequebooks, people!
